Details of swap:
This is the MAGIC YARN BALL SWAP!!  You will send your partner a project kit consisting of a one-skein pattern and yarn of corresponding weight/length for the pattern. The really fun part is that you will first make the yarn into a "magic yarn ball."  This means that you re-wind the yarn yourself, hiding little trinkets and treats inside the yarn as you go.  Some ideas already suggested include tiny toys; candy; crafting supplies; jewelry; hairthings. 
A good description of a Magic Yarn Ball is here:  http://whipup.net/2006/04/25/kids-yarn-project-the-magic-wool-ball/.
Round one gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=116415.0
Round two gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=134703.0
Round three gallery:

Since we're all crafty people, it goes without saying that we should craft some of the treats ourselves. I suggest, as a guideline, 15-20 things in the yarn ball and 4-5 of them be small crafts made by yourself. Feel free to exceed these guidelines (though, as with all swaps, don't go too overboard), and check out the round one and two galleries for inspiration. If you spend more money or time on some things, they might count for a little more, but since the point of this swap is to have lots and lots of tiny items for itty-bitty doses of joy, it's more in keeping with the spirit of the swap to make things small and have more of them.

When you sign up, let your partner know if you already know what you want the yarn for (ex. "I would like yarn so I can make the MagKnits Sophie Bag"); or, if you have a general idea (ex. "I would like yarn and a pattern for a felt handbag"); or, if you just want a surprise pattern. If you have more than one idea for a pattern, feel free to give your partner a choice of patterns to choose from.

This is for one-skein or one-ball projects. However, there is a question on the sign-up questionnaire about doing a pattern with more than one skein. If this interests you, give a range of skeins (ex. "I'll swap for 1-3 skeins") and I'll do my best to match people up by that.

Please don't ask your partner to supply you with a photocopied pattern from a book (which is against copyright). There are tons of free patterns out there online- this is a great opportunity to get that special yarn for an online project you've been meaning to try.

If you want to participate, copy this form, fill it out, and PM it to the organizer:

ok for my math project i am doing a hypothesis test on how much craftsters and non crafty people spend to see who spends less
so at my school i have plenty of subjects who don't craft but not enough who do so i was wondering if you could just tell me roughly how much you spent in the last two days it doesn' have to be exact just an estimate that would really help thanks

even if you didn't spend any money i still would like to know Smiley
